* EmbeddedPrecursor: The UrExample. Ed's 64K computer (implied to be the C64) has the fully playable PC port of ''Maniac Mansion''. Just like the original version, it only has one save slot. This also applies to the HD version, where you also get some [[AchievementSystem achievements]] for trying it out and microwaving the hamster.
